The products previously known as TruSeq Stranded Total RNA Library Prep Kit with Ribo-Zero Human/Mouse/Rat (Cat. No. RS-122-2201, RS-122-2202, and RS-122-2203) and TruSeq Stranded Total RNA Library Prep Kit with Ribo-Zero Gold (Cat. No. RS-122-2301, RS-122-2302, and RS-122-2303) are now called TruSeq Stranded Total RNA Human/Mouse/Rat and TruSeq Stranded Total RNA Gold, respectively. The product configuration has changed. In the new configuration, the library preparation reagents and index adapters can be purchased separately. The list of components available for individual purchase can be found in the “Select Product(s)” section.

Product Highlights

TruSeq Stranded Total RNA provides a clear view of the transcriptome with a streamlined, cost-efficient, and scalable solution for total RNA analysis with sequencing.

Whole-Transcriptome Analysis with Precise Measurement of Strand Orientation

Compatible with a wide range of samples, including low-quality DNA/RNA and formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded (FFPE) samples, TruSeq Stranded Total RNA couples all of the benefits of TruSeq RNA technology with Ribo-Zero ribosomal RNA reduction chemistry. The product enables analysis of coding and multiple forms of noncoding RNA with precise measurement of strand orientation, uniform coverage, and high-confidence discovery of features such as alternative transcripts, gene fusions, and allele-specific expression.

Species Compatibility

TruSeq Stranded Total RNA is designed for human, mouse and rat sequences, but may be applicable to a variety of eukaryotic species.*

*For information about a particular species of interest, contact Illumina Technical Support.

Flexible Solutions for a Range of Study Designs

TruSeq Stranded Total RNA is available in multiple versions to fit specific study design needs:

  • TruSeq Stranded Total RNA Human/Mouse/Rat removes cytoplasmic rRNA
  • TruSeq Stranded Total RNA Gold removes both cytoplasmic and mitochondrial rRNA
  • The total RNA kits are also compatible with the new unique dual (UD) index kits, IDT for Illumina - TruSeq RNA UD Indexes, which allows multiplexing of up to 96 samples
